James 1:5 If you need wisdom –
if you want to know what God wants you to do - ask him, and he will gladly tell
you. He will not resent your asking.
Don’t wait! Buy it now! Grab the
gusto before it goes! You’re only young once! Go for it! No one will know! Call
that guy or girl! Blurt out your inner most thoughts! Let it all hang out! Buy
that car…and on and on…
I’ve jumped into quicksand so many times because I didn’t wait for God or because I didn’t ask God what road I should have taken. Things can turn out
differently if we stop and ask for God’s wisdom and then follow through. If
we’re going to ask for God’s wisdom, then we must be willing to obey…
The key message is this: Talk to
God when things are going well for you. Pray before you are shaken up. And, you will be shaken up at some point.
to give you revelation and discipline in the areas where you are tempted. We’re
usually tempted in the areas where we are weak by our own desires and choices.
James 1:14 Temptation comes from
the lure of our own evil desires.
Don’t be sucked in with the world’s wisdom. Don't blame others for your shortcomings. Remember that you will have
to answer to an all-powerful God.

still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right,
but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible
predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower
